This was such a fun coloring book and I simply loved that it contained images relating to some of my favorite romance books. Yes, it’s an adult coloring book for book lovers! How awesome is that?

So, let me tell you a little about the book. First off, I love that this is a square book— there’s just something about the square books that I enjoy and, to me, they seem to offer more coloring space. The paper is a nice, crisp white and the texture of the paper is nice and smooth but there’s just enough tooth to it to grab watercolors. The weight of the paper is a lightweight cardstock but it holds up nicely under all mediums that I used. So, there’s a lot of ink on the pages because of how busy some of the drawings are and I have to say that ink, thankfully, doesn’t smear. Also, the images are only printed on one side so you can use markers without worrying about destroying what’s printed on the back.

The images are fabulous in this one and, honestly, even if you’ve not read the books featured, they are still going to grab your attention. Each image has a quote from a particular romance book or a bookish saying and the pages range from simple images that can be colored in a 30 minutes to images that could take days to work on.

I used several different mediums: gel pens, Sharpie markers, prismacolor pencils and markers, normal Crayola colored pencils, Staedtler fineliner markers and pencils, and Royal and Langnickel watercolors.
Each medium I used worked like a charm and the color laid down brilliantly. Although, as I’ve mentioned before, if you’re using markers or watercolors be sure to place a few sheets of paper behind the page you’re coloring to use as a blotter to catch the colors that seep through.
I really liked the durability of the paper. I never had a problem with the paper flaking or balling up when I used watercolors or shaded over the pencils with gel pens.
Overall, I really enjoyed this one. And the only problem I did have with this one was that there were so many fun designs, I wasn’t sure which one I wanted to color first.
